I hope so, it was a random one I had laying around.

Well I got the down pipe all mocked up tonight. I tacked it together and pulled it off to weld up tomorrow with my smaller welder at work. I need to locate a 2.5-3" exhaust pipe that I can make a collector for the "Y" pipe. Then is smooth sailing from there with the exhaust.
I just bought a stainless collector off the net to make mine, worked fine and was quick and dirty. (As if it isn't obvious my y-pipe was for a v8, not an I-6, but you get the idea.) Do you do stainless or mild steel for your exhaust?

Sorry I missed you today Jeff. I got off early today and rushed home to finish the exhaust. I will call you tomorrow.

You do not even know.


So I have a grand total of 12 dollars in my complete exhaust system. I made the entire thing out of scrap exhaust pipes from work.

Starting with a custom down pipe welded together to turn forward into a $3.00 collector I made out of a 3" to 2.5" reducer, then a custom 90 degree through the upper and lower front control arm mounts, into a V6 Camry cat and resonator, finally passing through a salvaged flowmaster off of the Flop Project and finishing with a tail pipe custom cut from a FJ cruiser with stainless tip. two O2 bungs from ebay for $2.75 and a can of high temp paint for $6.25.


Sounds like a BOSS.

I will post a better video with better sound later on. My fan was causing a lot of back ground noise.

Cut down the drive shaft for the rear today. Just need the Tera flex yoke to hook it together.
